It was me, my co-brother (sister-in-law’s husband), his daughter (The Niece), and Geek Spawn. Just like the epic stories of White Fang, Eight Below and Snow Dogs, we braved the snowy wilderness!
After being told by a certain tourist site by the Matanuska Glacier that they were the only way to get on the ice (at $75 per person, plus a $20 per person site fee!!!), we managed to find a way to go that ONLY cost us the $20 per person site fee. So basically, they were trying to scam us!
But we did go out on the ice! And we did go farther than is recommended without gear or a $75 guide! And we did see incredible beauty! And we did have a really great time!
I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance. Don’t go too far onto it because glaciers really can be dangerous places. But wow! They sure are neat! Piles of white wonder with rivers of melted icy waters flowing in, around and through them. Beautiful!
Have you been to a glacier? Walk on one? Comment me!
